And his numbers still are't as good as "pretty boy" Alex Rodriguez
What's this have to do with A-Rod? I didn't see him mentioned anywhere.
Labelling Manny a gangster is silly; then saying his numbers are like a gangster. The joke pokes fun of the notion that his numbers make him a gangster when someone with better numbers is deemed a pretty boy. I can't believe I had to explain that to you.
actually, i thought rodriguez was deemed more of a choke artist. or the "payton manning of the mlb" (great reg. season #s and then in the postseason... hey... around my neck... ack... gag!!! gag!!!) (although i always thought of him as the kevin millar of the yankees... millar hits about .9978 with bases empty in a 10-0 game but about -0.752 if there's someone on base, in a tie game, that the red sox actually care about).
but if you want to think of rodriguez as a pretty boy... well... who am i to argue.
and manny can be all the gangsta his bad self believes him to be. the man can outright hit.
